Mega Drive - Sensible Soccer
« on: 26 March 2019, 12:42:17 »
Open discussion for anything involving Sensible Soccer on the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis).

Is there many other players out there?

I'd love to know your sensible stories or what you remember fondly from the game.

Sensi on the Mega Drive was my introduction to the beautiful game and I played almost exclusively on Custom Teams with the likes of Sensible XI, Dog Wednesday and Farewell United.

Me and my friends (around 12 of us in total) played this religiously from the ages 7-16.

We always stuck to 'Normal' difficulty as 'Hard' didn't allow you to turn with the ball and that ruined the fun of running rings around your opponent and scoring wonderful one man runs.

I am a Hong Kong people and got the first touch with sensi through sensible soccer Mega drive version (genesis).

We played in "EASY" difficulty and greatly enjoyed!

Four of us had played Sensible MD version for 2 years, until we switched to play SWOS 95/96 PC version.

You could score some wonder goals on the 'EASY' setting.

The ball always curled toward to net, meaning you could score from the most bizarre angles.

I'd have loved some of the settings that SWOS had on the mega drive version, but I can only assume we never saw SWOS on the Mega Drive due to the memory limitations of a 16bit console.

I wonder if they ever considered a sequel for the mega drive or possibly even the Saturn.

Thanks for replying :)

As the Saturn stands for 3D Graphics (like PS One) I doubt that there ever were thoughts for a Sensi Sequel in 2D as that was so outdated these days.

Today when we play 90's 3D titles we notice how bad these games grow old.

Now we know: 3D isn't everything. Only the fun counts.   ;) e.g.? SWOS  ;D

Very true, I recently tried to play Fifa 97 on the Sega Saturn and found it boarder line impossible due to the block graphics and clunky system...although I remember loving it back in the day.

I'd have loved them to have had more instalments on console (of the 2D variety) as a none PC gamer I felt left out.

Try to search "replace battery for your mega drive (genesis) cardridge" in google.
